''System Shock'' by Creator/LookingGlassStudios was a groundbreaking FirstPersonShooter with SurvivalHorror and RPGElements set in a CyberPunk future. It wasn't exactly a smashing success in sales, but it produced a sequel that was probably one of the best [=FPSes=] in history and spawned one of the most memorable villains in all of video games.

* PsychicBlockDefense: The Soldier seems to have this, since the backstory established that just being near the eggs is enough to for The Many control the victim. It's heavily implied that the Many can't control the PlayerCharacter because of his brain implant.

* TheAllegedCar: The Von Braun suffers from numerous breakdowns, especially with its experimental FTL drive. Coolant leaks are constant and there are very few radiation suits on board, so engineering staff are carrying around rad hypos constantly. It's implied that Tri-Optimum cheaped out on most of the safety protocols and ignored most of Delacroix's warnings that the ship wasn't ready for its mission.
* TheAllegedComputer: XERXES turns out to be hilariously easy to hack into. Someone manages to get him to sing Music/ElvisPresley songs for three hours until Delacroix is forced to pull his voice unit offline. Subsequently, when The Many start assimilating members of the Von Braun's crew, they are able to bring XERXES and, thus, all of the ship's security systems, protocol droids and sentry bots, onto their side in order to take control of the Von Braun.
